Nicely done! I can feel the theories a-swirlin' in my mind already. Like, have we seen or will we see a sentient Shard with no Vessel? That could be really cool.

I think you've earned your name.

 

Seriously though, I have asked questions regarding investiture's sentience and got RAFOed. This question has reinvigorated so many theories of mine.

Reckoners Spoiler

No. Calamity is Adonalsium. He mucked around on Earth a bit, then escaped after his supposed defeat in Calamity, went to Yolen, and got shattered. Definitely. Because Reckoners is most definitely Cosmere. Or maybe he can move between dimensions universes. 

Note.

So... we have pseudo-confirmation that Adolnalsiums intent was to create sentience? Nice job on that at least, and you managed to shed some light on the way investiture works.

Seriously this is more information than I've seen in awhile. Great work!

well we may notice how all his/her/it Shards(also the most destructive once) have this compulsive need to Invest their powers and fuel life and magic.

It's the reason I was really interesting in the couple of them that actually went aganist this Super-Mandate (Odium and the shard-not-invested)

That's a really good question, and the response it got makes it even more so. It probably won't change much about how we theorycraft, but we know so precious little about Adonalsium, every little bit feels enormous.

Agree with the others -- excellent question and it's impressive you did not get RAFO'd.  I suspect Brandon rewarded you for a such a good question! Well done and an upvote.

I think @Yata has it right -- this really helps explain why the vessels have taken such an interest in people, planets, etc.  It probably also helps explain the magic systems on minor shardwords.

Thanks guys!

Yeah, I've noticed Brandon is more likely to answer a question where you have a well thought out answer/solution prepared, and you are looking for confirmation rather than hand outs.  Sure it can still be too much of a spoiler - a RAFO, or your idea/conception is just plain wrong; but then when it isn't and you strike gold it's exciting!
 

As for the investiture/sentience info given here, the more I think about it, the more relevant it seems!  I'm certain that at some point we'll have a major source of investiture that loses it's vessel and slowly starts directing itself.  (And an Adonalsium info is absolutely fascinating for me!)

It makes sense with Frost and jHoid discussing messing around in the master's workshop
